Match Report: Notts County come from two goals down to draw against Grimsby Town

Joe Jones

Notts County fought back from two goals down to clinch a point in a 2-2 draw against Grimsby Town in Saturday's League Two meeting at Meadow Lane.

Paul Hurst's charges began the game brightly and were ahead just after the half-hour mark when a corner was headed towards goal by Shaun Person.

Despite the defender being around 15 yards out, the ball dumbfounded every Notts defender and crept into the bottom corner, much to the dismay of the home players, staff and fans.

It would get worse for the Magpies as, 56 minutes in, another defensive mistake led to another Mariners goal.

Omar Bogle extended the visitors' lead when he raced on to a poor back pass from Stanley Aborah and beat the advancing Adam Collin.

John Sheridan's side set about trying to claw something back from the game and were rewarded on 77 minutes when Richard Duffy forced a save from James McKeown into a save and Jonathan Forte poked home the rebound.

Moments after the restart, Notts won a penalty after Vadaine Oliver was felled in the box, but captain Michael O'Connor sent his spot kick against the post and out of play.

Nevertheless, the Magpies were able to get something back from the game after loanee Aaron Collins rifled home from Oliver's knockdown.
